A: Hello, Yes, as it takes the same carafe and parts as the DCC-3200P1.
A: It does beep when the brewing is done, and the default is the machine turns off after two hours.
A: Yes, it has an auto shut-off and beeps when it is finished brewing. This is a great coffee maker, I highly recommend it.
A: I never filled it to the limit of the water reservoir but assume the water reservoir is not more than the size of the coffee carafe. YES, the machine beeps when coffee is brewed.
A: Yes, shuts off about an hour. you can turn on or off the beep when it is ready (done brewing) and has 3 temp ranges for your pot.
A: Can use paper or permanent filter. Paper filters are easier. Permanent are hard to wash out fine grinds. There is no cholesterol in coffee.
A: You can use either, and/or both. For regular ground coffee, i.e. Folgers/Maxwell House, I just use the metal permanent filter. You'll have/get a little more flavor to your coffee, but by the time you get to the last cup in the pot you'll have a little residue in your cup. Not harmful, just a little yucky if you drink it. If I go with a fine grind, like some of those specialty coffees, like Guatemalan/Costa Rican, Hawaiian, African/Ethiopian/Kenyon, or Sumatran (which are all volcanic soil coffees) I use both. I put a paper filter under my permanent filter. The type of coffee filter this machine uses is a cone style (the upside down triangle). My left over filters from my old pot are the regular flat (Mr Coffee) style. That's why I put it under the permanent filter instead of inside it. As far as your question about using filtered water, the answer is (Yes) eventually. The timeframe will just be pushed out farther depending how much of a coffee drinker you are. There are 2 types of filters in this coffee maker, the coffee filter and the water filter. This part of your question refers to the water filter. Just like with a Mr Coffee machine, every 2/3 months you still need to run a little CLR through the machine when it starts gurgling. On this machine there is an indicator that glows red when it's time. The only thing you do is pull out the water filter before running the CLR through it. Than stick it back in after a couple of rinse cycles. Eventually you are supposed to replace it. I'm not sure when, I haven't gotten there yet, and I drink a pot of coffee a day and have had the machine about 14 months now.
A: Yes, paper filters can be used. We use them all the time rather than the metal screen in order to have less sediment in the coffee. Paper Filters should be replaced after each use.
A: I use "Melitta" Brand Natural Brown Super Premium Paper coffee filters in my Cuisinart. I used filtered water with every filter and brew. The little rectangular filter on the left side need only replaced when it turns brown or has coffee grounds on it. I check mine every other brew. The result with Gevalia ground coffee is very good tasting coffee.
A: The filter screen can be replaced with #4 cone filters; the maker, actually, comes with a few cone filters. I do not use the permanent screen, as it passes some grounds. There is an inexpensive charcoal filter that should be replaced every few months. Better coffee is made with mineral or tap water. About once a month, a red light comes on, telling you to run a cleaning cycle, with 1/3 pot white vinegar to 2/3 pot water. After a flushing cycle it is ready to make more coffee. This is my 3rd maker; they last about 5 years when they leak at the burner.
A: I’ve only used paper filters with this coffee pot. I don’t use any additional filters. Periodically I have to clean it with white vinegar when the ‘clean’ light comes on
